America Remembers - A 9/11 Tribute

June 12, 2014  •  24 Comments

AMERICA Remembers was created Friday,September 16th, 2011 during the 9/11 tribute in Hamburg ,NY . My goal was to have it include 2755 people, the number who died in the WTC. The event was followed an incredible ceremony.

Frontier High School and Big Tree Elementary united as one. This image contains 2780 people pixels. My goal was to represent the number which died in the WTC on 9/11. Special quests were invited, including Chris Collins, Dignitaries, 25 servicemen, 40 first responders, 12 Veterans, 4 injured soldiers including Chris Kreiger, Major William Biondillo, one dog from Afghanistan.

Sky divers delivered an American Flag later presented to the Walier family by the Marines color guard. Also in attendance was an American Eagle, a bagpiper, performing "Amazing Grace", doves which were released. Over 100 volunteers helped assemble this formation. This image is 160 feet. Photographer Dave Sion shot this from 100 ft. Aerial designer Patty Watson of Pattys People Pictures painted planned, and organized by height. Within minutes voila, a Live AMERICA.

You can see a video of the entire production here. 

Special guest Ashley Bunce joined all the way from DC as a representative for the Bob Woodruff Foundation "Stand Up For Heroes". She brought 3000 dog tags ReMind.org.What you can"t see is the sound of patriotic songs, the smiles and whispers of the kids, and the the feeling of strength as we were in the presence of all the HEROES in uniforms. Many tears were had by all.As the students marched in from all sides, the walk ways were lined with soldiers, Marines, Airmen, police, firemen, dignitaries,our school board, and admin.Soloist Vanessa Surez serenaded us with God Bless America. Frontier band played patriotic music. The cooperation and respect demonstrated by all students was commendable. Many thanks to Bank of America for their generous sponsorship along with other community donors allowing for the purchase of matching red,white, and blue AMERICA Remembers T-shirts.
